if your going all wako on a paint job it would be up to you what looks best. why does it matter what other people think if your already trying to go outside the normal?

Whatever color you pick, make sure you add some glow in the dark. Just saying.

Check out liquidpowdercoats.com. Ask that guy about some of his stuff. He may sell you the materials. Some of his two-stage color are unreal.

This is the color of my I/C pipes.


He also has glow-in-the-dark clear coat. It can't be seen during the day.



Candy grape.




More examples...

purrrpleee. if I wasnt so cheap, i'd powder coat my stockers purple...though I almost think its tougher trying to find purple wheel spray paint than finding money to powdercoat.

I like the orange a lot... would go a bit darker to match the tone of the paint. Hope you like your results. :-)

Any would be cool. I think I'm going to buy another set of stockers and paint two on one side one color and two on the other side another color. I see it done every now and then.

Pink. Or Purple. I would say Shocker Yellow, but that's the color I'm doing mine. And I don't want it to be the next green.

AND OF COURSE GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!!
